Results

Below is a list of just a few of the things I have enabled my clients to do:

Publish best-selling books

I have co-written books for clients, helping them to build their credibility without putting in all the grunt work themselves.

Relax

I handle everyday tasks for one client, so he can spend less time at his computer and more time skiing.

Spend less time in their inboxes

I handle customer service for several clients, meaning they only have to respond to a handful of emails a day.

Create an audio course

I turned my client’s audio files into an audio course. He gained a new income stream without spending hours creating it.

P

Provide additional services

One client has outsourced design tasks from his consulting clients to me, providing them with more value.

Generate Passive Income

I handle paid tasks, customer service, and email marketing for a client, so he earns money even when he’s not working.

v

Speak at TEDx

I found the perfect TEDx event one for my clients. Her talk has generated more customers, subscribers, interviews, and a TV gig.

Travel

I took over everyday community management for my client, enabling her to go traveling in her campervan.

Break into the app market

I designed 2 apps for my client. He now has a portfolio of 4*+ rated apps on the market.

Build a large following

In the time that I managed its social media accounts, one brand’s Facebook page went from 2,000 likes to 40,000.

Spend less time podcasting

I write comprehensive show notes, tag audio files, and schedule them to go live, so my client only has to record them.

Focus on growth

I managed 2 websites for a client, freeing him up to launch new products, start new sites, and plan an international initiative.
